Barack Obama effortlessly shoots basketball through hoop on US election trail

Barack Obama drew admiring gasps when he effortlessly threw a basketball through a hoop on the US election campaign trail with Joe Biden.

The former US President, 59, looked spry and full of energy as he joined 77-year-old Democrat Biden at a gym in Flint, Michigan, on October 31.

In the clip, which has gone viral on Reddit, Obama is passed the ball and bounces it twice before netting it from a distance in a perfect three-pointer.

As it drops through the hoop Biden’s staff cheer and laugh.

"That’s what I do," boasts Obama as he exits the gym with the entourage.

The video has been up-voted more than 100,000 times after being shared on Reddit and many people commented that he was the "coolest" president ever.

One fan gushed: "The swag and the walk-off. What a boss."

A second wrote: "Regardless of your politics, it’s hard to argue that Obama wasn’t the coolest, smoothest president of our time.

"Bill Clinton playing the sax comes close."

Someone else wrote: "As a logical Republican, I miss this man."

A pollster who has predicted the US election results correctly since 1996 has predicted that Donald Trump is "almost certain" to win a second term at the 2020 election, on Tuesday, November 3.

But the majority of mainstream polls put him behind Biden and argue that statistical modelling shows voters are turning against Trump.

More bizarrely, a 90-year-old Christian preacher claims "God told him in a dream" that Trump will win the election and then a world-ending asteroid will hit Earth.

Pat Robertson, a famous multi-millionaire televangelist, made the doomsday prediction in a Christian TV show.
